named error from /var/named/etc/root.hint

Jamie Paul Griffin-11
Hi

I recently upgraded my system to the Dec 21 snapshot, will be updating again to the Jan 09 snapshot; but, I noticed an error message in /var/log/messages yesterday when I rebooted my machine:


Jan 13 21:16:43 kontrol named[23666]: checkhints: d.root-servers.net/A (199.7.91.13) missing from hints
Jan 13 21:16:43 kontrol named[23666]: checkhints: d.root-servers.net/A (128.8.10.90) extra record in hints

I managed to fix it by downloading a new file from ftp://ftp.internic.net/domain/named.cache and copying it to /var/named/etc/root.hints.

I Just thought I would post that in case anyone else has/had the same issue.

Cheers, Jamie

On Jan 3, D.ROOT changed its ip address.  We updated our sources on and
after the 3rd.

The hints file was updated 10 days ago within the -current src tree.

That is more so a warning than an error and your name server will work
fine even without the most up to date hints file.

This would get updated when you run sysmerge against newer sources
or a newer etc52.tgz.

I did run sysmerge(8) after the upgrade as documented. It must have been something I did wrong then. Sorry for that.

Dec 21 would have been too early for that; d.root didn't change
address until after then. So you are fixed anyway by downloading from
internic, and other people updating and running sysmerge now will also
be fixed.
